MAIL, SHIPPING, & PACKAGE DELIVERY SERVICES

student-mailboxes

Texas A&M University students living on-campus can receive mail via their University Apartments provided mailbox or rent a Post Office Box.

Mail is not delivered to individual on-campus residents rooms or apartments. Residence hall and Corps residents may rent mailboxes from Student Mail Services or the U.S. Post Office. Apartment’s residents have centralized mailboxes available at no additional cost.  

Mail service at the Commons and Hullabaloo Hall is Under New Management!

Check the Corps of Cadets and Residence Halls toggle below for more specific information.

Mailboxes are provided at the University Apartments as part of your housing charges. Each apartment is assigned one mailbox for the residents to share and each student resident is issued a mailbox combination upon moving into an apartment. The apartment community also has several package mailboxes. If you receive a key in your mailbox, this indicates you have received a large package and must pick it up in the large mailboxes.

Mail delivery is handled by the U.S. Post Office for Gardens Apartments and by Texas A&M University Mail Services for White Creek Apartments.

Gardens Apartments

Mailboxes for the Gardens Apartments Building F thru L are located on the outside of the laundry building. Mailboxes for Gardens Apartments M thru Q are located on the outside of the activity building. The pick-up location for Gardens residents for signature required mail and all USPS packages that do not fit in the parcel boxes is the College Station U.S. Post Office located at 2130 Harvey Mitchell Pkwy South. Pick-up hours at this location are from 9:00am – 5:00pm, Monday – Friday and 9:00am – 12pm, Saturday.

Any parcels that are not delivered due to size and/or require a signature must be picked up at the College Station Post Office.

Any undeliverable mail (i.e., no building #, no suite #, no resident listing) will either be immediately returned to sender or will be recycled in the case of junk mail.

Any mail that is delivered to your box but is not your mail can be brought to the Gardens Apartments Office for redirection or be placed in the outgoing mail slot for USPS to re-deliver or return.

Any undeliverable mail (i.e., no building #, no suite #, no resident listing) once Mail Services exhausts their lookup resources will either be immediately returned to sender or will be recycled in the case of junk mail.
